I've looked at the context of this verse before and come to the conclusion it is referring to the local church. In looking at this verse in its context what do you see?

The whole chapter is speaking of spiritual things like gifts in the body of Christ. This is a spiritual baptism not some Baptist Brider nonsense.

Alright, so if it is a spiritual baptism, then I'm guessing you mean that at Pentecost the Holy Spirit began baptising people into the universal body of believers?

If this is so, what about believers in the Old Testament, looking forward to Christ's coming?

They would not be part of the body of Christ, if it began at Pentecost.  So how would it consist of all believers, or all believers?
